"Gun control is the idea that it's better to see a woman dead in an alley, strangled
with her own pantyhose, than to see her with a gun in her hand."—T.D. Melrose

I Pledge Allegiance to the Fraud…
by L. Neil Smith
Right-wing conservative Republicans frequently accuse their exact mirror-opposite counterparts on the Left of being more concerned with appearances than actualities. This is absolutely true, as far as it goes—the silliest example is the preference liberals often express for concealed weapons-carry over open carry; if they can’t see it (shudder) they don’t have to think about it—but in the symbolism-over-substance department it’s damned hard to beat anybody anywhere to the right of Hubert Horatio Humphrey (look him up—he was my generation’s live-action equivalent of Porky Pig—except I think he wore trousers with his sportscoat and bow- tie) for sheer, hysterical foaming-at-the-mouth fury when the subject happens to be something like burning the American flag.

Mom & Dad, I Want To Be a Misanthrope!
by Nic Leobold
When I looked up the word a few years ago I discovered ‘misanthrope’ is a person who hates everyone, or in other words, a person who hates all other people. How interesting! Why would Anyone hate all people?? Why would such a person ever exist? Upon further reflection, however, the answer become a little more clear.

Who's Crazy?
by Jim Davidson
Recently, one of the candidates for president representing one of the two self-anointed “major” political parties (she’d like me to mention her name) said that the Americans supporting her opponent (he’d like me to mention his name) from the other “major” party were in general terms, about half in the “basket of deplorables.” Keep in mind that this woman has frequently talked about taking guns away from all Americans, which Machiavelli correctly noticed causes a person to be despised. Being unarmed, he said, among the other harm it brings you, causes you to be despised.

Against Islamophobia
by Sean Gabb
I am told every so often that Islam is necessarily a religion of terrorism—that a true Moslem has no choice but to accept the rightness of spreading and upholding his faith by violence, and that any Moslem who denounces the murder and oppression of unbelievers is either lying or not a true Moslem. These declarations of alleged orthodoxy generally come from people who are unable to read The Koran in Arabic, and who are unfamiliar with the two million hadith, or sayings and doings of the Prophet, which are variously binding on the faithful, and who have not made themselves aware of the different schools of interpretation of these foundation texts, and who have only a nodding acquaintance with the multiplicity of sects that have arisen within Islam over the past fourteen hundred years. Usually, they come from people who have not read the whole of The Koran in English. Their ignorance, even so, is matched by the certainty they bring to what they say about the nature of “true” Islam.

It's Not Our Job To Correct Wrong-Thinking
by Paul Bonneau
I was looking at youtubes and articles linked here a week or two ago, starting with Chris Cantwell’s “Top 10 Reasons Libertarians Aren’t Nice To You”. I can’t help but think Chris misses the point here. Certainly, it must have been satisfying to deliver this whack, and might even have, here and there, a salubrious effect—much as a 2x4 across the nose might occasionally provide.

Dissing Snowden
by L. Reichard White
In tandem with the release of Oliver Stone’s excellent biopic Snowden this week, there’s also a resurgence of the effort to discredit NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden. I don’t need to suggest who might be interested in doing that.

The Litmus Test for Agorism
by J. Neil Schulman
Samuel Edward Konkin III, and I, co-founded what today is called Agorism or the Agorist movement. Sam was Agorism’s chief theoretician in published works such as The New Libertarian Manifesto (1980) and The Agorist Primer (1986). Before that Sam introduced counter-economics in his talks to the CounterCon conferences I organized in fall 1974 and spring 1975. The first printed explication of Agorism was in my novel, Alongside Night (Crown Publishers, 1979).


If you haven't read/voted go read What Shall I Write Next? by L. Neil Smith.

Well, now. I hope you all are working at being as deplorable as possible. We know Hillery would like us all to be in chains, if not dead. That's rude, don't you think? Deplorable!

Oh yes, someone said I should not say “Hitlery” on account of it was disrespectful. Sorry Adolph, didn't mead to disrespect ya by equating you with deplorable her. Er… okay now.

Sarah Hoyt has mentioned that Somebody has finally stepped up and started trying to help liberty-loving writers/artists/filmers, etc. to network and get 'er done.

About past time, I'd say.

If the AR-15 is America’s Rifle, I have no problem with that, although I much prefer the operating system of the M1 Garand (M-14, M1a, Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30). But one thing really irritating about the AR-15 is that 5.56x45mm prairie dog cartridge it uses (a.k.a. .223 Remington). Well, now we have a new cartridge which is nothing more than the 5.56 case necked-up to take a 0.257-inch bullet:


Install a new barrel (kits at the Sharps site). Neck-up yer .223 brass to 25-caliber and turn yer AR-15 poodle-shooter into a real rifle! Wow!
